PARADE!!! — Saturday 1:00 p.m. — Yes we will! We’ll have our very own, special, Kure Beach Waddle! It may not be Charleston, but when there’s a big group of bassets on the march, it’s a sight to see!!! Hawaiian shirts or straw hats on your bassets anyone? Sunglasses? Deck out the hounds and watch heads turn!
Basset Derby — Saturday 1:30 pm — at the Kure Beach Dog Park. Like the Kentucky Derby but for bassets only. Anyone who knows bassets knows they can RUN! Hmmm…a mantle of roses and a prize for thoroughbreds, so a mantle of sausages and a prize for bassets??? Join us and find out!
Salty Paws and Chillin’ Time — Saturday 2:30 to 4:00 pm — Kure Beach, Carolina Beach. Hang out at the Community Center and chat with your friends; head to the Salty Paws festival on Carolina Beach (the ride’s on us!); take a stroll on the beach with your two- or four-legged buddies; head to the Aquarium at Fort Fisher (a five-minute drive from the Community Center); do some sightseeing in Wilmington — the time is yours to enjoy!
Casino Night — Saturday 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. — Inlet Watch Marina (Wilmington) — a two-legger only event. Las Vegas-style gaming tables, entertainment, food, soft drinks, cash bar for wine and beer, and a silent auction. Try your luck and play for some big prizes like a large-screen TV, an Apple iPad, just to name a couple.
Breakfast with Bassets — Sunday 10:00 am — Location to be determined. Get together for a late breakfast before you head home. More details about this event will be coming soon.
